When it comes to All Hallow’s Eve, pumpkin carving is a time-honored tradition. However, while most of us are content to simply slice a boring, old smiley face out of our big giant gourds, the more motivated artiste has the potential to create some truly amazing artwork. Below are 30 creative, funny and completely awesome pumpkin carvings.
